Team: Shilpa Ranade With Siddhi Shah

Project Duration: 2006 - 2009

This 50-room Guesthouse draws its inspiratin from the traditional house for travellers - the caravanserai. The guestrooms are arranged sround two introverted courts - a classic square and an eccentric trapezoid - forming spaces at rest. The common and service spaces literally ruputre the isolation of the courts through their angular customized forms and in the process also create connections to the outside. The overall experience is one of an introverted tranquillity and grave timelessness, punctuated by unexpected encounters with the light - hearted present.
